Impact Wrestling: This is iMPACT! (AIR DATE SPOILERS)
 
Ok since I'm about the only one who watches Impact on a weekly basis and the ROH thread has dropped Impact I figure I'd start one for the new Impact Wrestling.

Now they are only 3 episodes in to the new regime taking over and as a fan I think it's been complete shit really. First episode was a complete WWE reference the whole show pretty much. 2nd episode was ok but not a lot of wrestling in my option. The last episode had a lot of tag team wrestling but the last segment was just bad. Karen Jarrett of all people was brought out, and I guess she's got some type of power they never really said but she ended up slapping Josh Mathews who was really the best part of the segment. Might have been an alright segment had it been in the middle of the show but it's not something to end a show on.

Really trying to be more WWE like than they were with Hogan I think. This week Bruce had a sit down interview with Lashley that was very similar to a Micheal Cole style interview. Wasn't even needed because people know who Lashley is. Now had they interviewed one of these many new faces they have that would have made sense but they pretty much just used it to kind of turn Bobby face.

Now to what I do like, all the new faces are nice and they seem to be working with a lot of different promotions. Feel like they had a lot of smaller promotions lined up to face the Hardys as they have had the Future Stars of Wrestling Tag Team titles and last week had Monster Factory Tag Team champions on the show with their titles. Seems like they just reworked things and it worked I think. Next week they are supposed to crown new tag team champions but really haven't said anything about who will be in the match at all just that next they will crown champions.

Cody Rhodes has been good and him and Moose wrestle next week for the Grand Championship, I just hope they drop the round stuff and have a regular match. Actually wore Bullet Club gear this week which I'm not sure if thats legal or not.

If they are truly doping the TNA they really need to get new titles. All but the Grand Championship still have TNA on them and its dumb to say TNA is dead only to still have those titles.

They just don't seem to be able to find their identity and are reaching for anything they can. Trying to be like WWE but different at the same time. Trying to be great shouldn't mean being WWE but I think that's what they are going for. TNA was great when it was an alternative to WWE and once they realize that they might get somewhere.

TLDR: Impact Wrestling has no idea what they are.

It's going to as long as they are trying to be like WWE. They'll never be able to do WWE as good as WWE does so it will come off as busch league.

We have a thread for this.

It's called the Official Piss In My Mouth and Shit On My Chest thread.

That's sounds like just another one of your regular threads though, didn't even realize it was about Impact. Just thought someone new that didn't get your humor might be able to find this thread a bit easier. It's been pretty bad but not that bad, not yet at least.

Yeah, I'm a NASCAR fan and for the longest time Busch beer sponsored NASCARs minor league series. So I use that when talking about bush/busch league things.

She is transforming into Stifler's Mom

Savio 03-25-2017 10:45 PM

Some mod was editing the title of the thread. but it's probably better if TNA had it's own separate thread.

The Midnight Gertner 03-25-2017 11:32 PM

Chris Masters just jumped Moose after Moose defended the Grand Championship at a house show in my hometown and it was being taped for Impact apparently. Masters just about kicked me in the face jumping the rail lol

The Midnight Gertner 03-25-2017 11:35 PM

It wasn't am Impact show by the way. It's the indie promotion that Scott D'Amore owns. A few guys like Kongo Kong and Idris Abraham who have appeared in Impact lately are from it. Border City Wrestling.

Kurt sure upgraded, that's for sure.

Simple Fan 03-30-2017 08:05 PM

Wonder how many WWE references they make this week. Karen Jarrett starting the show talking about Maria.

Simple Fan 03-30-2017 08:16 PM

New guy KM who is Siena's cousin came out and threatened Karen. Braxton Sutter made the save and will face KM later.

Simple Fan 03-30-2017 08:24 PM

X Division match Andrew Everett vs DJZ. Going to count Josh saying Impact is trending world wide as a WWE reference, also AJ Styles shout out for being first X Division champion.

Simple Fan 03-30-2017 08:29 PM

Everett won by roll up. Shane Helms and Trevor Lee came out after the match and told him he'd get an opportunity next week. No word what that opportunity was though, didn't sound like he'd get an X Division title shot though as Helms said he hadn't waned in with one win.

Simple Fan 03-30-2017 08:31 PM

Match was real spotty at the beginning, just as it was getting good they did the roll up finish.

Simple Fan 03-30-2017 08:35 PM

Rosemary is great, looks like she stole Brother Nero's contacts. ODB interrupts her and JB.

Simple Fan 03-30-2017 08:38 PM

Rosemary wanted to run but the Knockouts locker room ran her back into the ring. They all want title shots and now there's a huge brawl.

johnsmagic 03-30-2017 08:39 PM

If Karen Jarrett is getting involved in story lines... the doors will be closing up any day now

She's some type of authority figure. Haven't really said what her title is but that her family was back. I think she's the new head of the Knockouts but they haven't officially said that.

Simple Fan 03-30-2017 08:45 PM

Moose vs Cody is tonight. I just hope they have a regular match.

Simple Fan 03-30-2017 08:50 PM

EC3 is out now saying he needs to be the real EC3. Made a phenomenal and It factor reference, James Storm interrupts jealous because he didn't get referenced. EC3 didn't mention him because he was talking about multiple time world champions but really just making more WWE references.

Simple Fan 03-30-2017 08:54 PM

Weird, that turned into a fan segment and the fans will decide which one gets a title shot.

Simple Fan 03-30-2017 09:05 PM

Moose vs Cody is now and it's fucking timed rounds. Wish they'd scap this.

Simple Fan 03-30-2017 09:06 PM

I guess superkicking a judge is a good way to get rid of this shit. One judge down 2 to go Cody.

Simple Fan 03-30-2017 09:12 PM

Bruce Pritchard replaced the injured judge and Moose won round 1.

Simple Fan 03-30-2017 09:17 PM

Brandi Rhodes told Cody off in between rounds and she doesn't give a fucking shit, him and Moose can kill each other for all she cares. Cody won round 2.

Simple Fan 03-30-2017 09:19 PM

Round 3 looking like it's going to be a draw.

Simple Fan 03-30-2017 09:21 PM

Split decision Moose won. Really hope they use this to drop the rounds. Last two matches have come down to the judges.

Simple Fan 03-30-2017 09:30 PM

KM vs Sutter now.

Simple Fan 03-30-2017 09:37 PM

KM won with power bomb backstabber off a distraction by Siena. Sutter and Allow clear the ring afterwards and Laural Van Ness came out still in her wedding dress crying.

Simple Fan 03-30-2017 09:47 PM

Tag Team Championship match now. Graza Jr & Larado Kid vs Decay vs Reno Scum vs LAX. Still using TNA tag team championships.

Simple Fan 03-30-2017 09:51 PM

Hope Decay or LAX win this match. Haven't really been impressed with Reno Scum. I like Garza Jr but feel like he'd be a better singles wrestler.

Simple Fan 03-30-2017 10:02 PM

LAX won, really looked impressive and cohesive. Better show this week but nothing special. Next week has Eddie Edwards and Davey Richards in a last man standing match that should be pretty good.

SlickyTrickyDamon 03-30-2017 10:16 PM

Doesn't matter everybody knows those titles mean shit now that the Broken Hardyz left without losing them.

Kind of agree, should have just created new titles for the rebrand but I guess they are to cheap. Thought Decay tampering with Vanguard 1 was a good way to write the Hardys off but they didn't really explain what they did and just brushed it off the next week.
